The Agar jelly
Australia's selectors went in with three spinners, expecting the pitch to offer some turn. It was hard to tell from Ashton Agar's first two deliveries whether they were right. Neither ball made contact with the surface between leaving Agar's hand, encountering Martin Guptill's bat, and landing in the crowd. Agar was the first of the spinners to whom Steven Smith turned but his entry in the third over of the match hinted at plenty of nerves. From 0.2-0-12-0, he improved marginally - the next three balls were dots - but another six to end the over left him with 1-0-18-0. He did not bowl again.
Colin Munro introduced himself to the World T20 with a switch-hit for six against India, and he proved his adaptability once again in this match. Munro, a left-hander, was facing Glenn Maxwell when he spun around and switched into a right-hander, shaping to pull to what was originally his off-side boundary, but instead played a right-hander's late cut for four through fine leg. Or third man. Whatever. Rarely have instant replays been more necessary to work out what the hell just happened. Even Maxwell, a notorious switcher himself, looked perplexed.
You can no more get the sense of a wicket from reading the raw data on a scorecard than you can get a feel for a ground from looking on a map. But just as some cricket grounds are breathtakingly beautiful - hello, Dharamsala - some wickets are equally majestic to view. Such was the case with Mitchell Santner's dismissal of Steven Smith. A batsman of deft footwork, Smith danced down the pitch but was not just beaten in flight, he was thrashed. The ball dropped well short of Smith and turned past his bat, and he barely even contemplated trying to regain his ground. Instead, Smith took the advice of Peter Tosh and Mick Jagger, he walked and didn't look back.
Smith and Shane Watson had fallen by the ninth over but Australia's chase still looked to be on track with Usman Khawaja not only at the crease but in delicious form. The momentum all changed when he sprinted back to the non-striker's end in an attempt for a second run off David Warner's shot down the ground. Adam Milne's throw was perfect for Grant Elliott to whip the bails off, Khawaja was run out for 38, and Australia never really recovered.
